How to reliably find the validator address of a block? Relay API has gaps wherein some blocks are missing.

Is there any other reliable way to get the validator address?

You can see the address to which the rewards for the offered block have been sent

const { Web3 } = require('web3').   // "web3": "^4.2.1"
const { isAddress } = require('web3-validator')
const web3 = new Web3("https://virginia.rpc.blxrbdn.com")

async function GetLastNBlocks(n) {
    latestBlock = await web3.eth.getBlockNumber() - BigInt(1)
    web3.eth.getBlock(latestBlock).then((data, err) => {
        // console.log(latestBlock, "data:", data)
        console.log(data.miner, isAddress(data.miner)) // data.miner

You can see the block validator in the browser https://beaconcha.in/block/18475010 -> Proposer
